Protesting at the demolition of the Bowstring Bridge 5/10/09

We are the paymasters. Wake up.

We are the paymasters. Wake up.

Protesting against the demolition of the Bowstring Bridge and Pump and Tap pub to make way for a swimming pool attached to De Montfort University.

The council are selling the land for a measly £1 to DMU. They claim it is necessary to make way for a swimming pool, although why they can’t keep the bridge, the pub and build a pool somewhere else is beyond me.

The hypocrisy of the situation is that the council closed St Margarets Baths and done nothing to replace it for over 10 years. The bridge is a landmark as you go into Leicester, and is part of the Great Central Way. Why should the council knock down what little is left of the city’s heritage?

The answer is in the picture below. We need to campaign for a genuine, democratic alternative to the sleaze and corruption that infests politics at the moment.

No to city council cover ups & backhanders

At least in Leicester West, come the next election, the Socialist Party may well be standing to offer an alternative to the three main parties of sleaze, spin and corruption.
